In this video, we're going to explore the main differences between the MVC, MVVM, and MVP design patterns.

We’ll start with a quick recap of the MVC, MVVM and MVP history and move to modern days where we’ll explore ideas on how we can apply those patterns in iOS applications with UIKit. Finally, we’ll discuss why none of those acronyms can be considered a software architecture, but just UI design patterns.
